, 1989, 1990, 1991, the democratic party was dead. george h.w. bush was going to win. bill clinton wins. and republicans are dead. two years later, we come in because newt dominates. then it's bill clinton. i mean, it takes -- everybody talks about how the republican party's in horrible shape. and they are in horrible shape, but they need one strong leader. >> oh, yeah. a good one. >> when allen west says there's 78 communists, go hey, idiot, shut up. no, they're not. when you get a republican president, they can do it. >> they can do it. and allen west knows that his phone's going to ring when he says it. >> right. so he won't say it. >> exactly. and so not until a leader emerges, you're just going to have your fist in your forehead a lot because they're just going to outdo each other. and parties go through this. we went through it. >> joe's come up with, i think, a great frame on this. you were advising president clinton, then governor clinton in '91. you talked about the middle class, frankly the values of the party had strayed from -- or at least the public view separated from the

"the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. the republicans' president's day sale on the economy a total bust. tonight the truth on our spending problem. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> there you go. good job. >> four years after the stimulus saved us from depression, republicans are dragging us into recession. >> spending is the problem. >> tonight the facts versus republican fantasy on the economy and the sequester. >> we have had a massive cover-up on the part -- >> but a massive cover-up of what? >> john mccain is at it again. >> do you care whether four americans died? >> retired colonel lawrence wilkerson on the blind republican rage
newspaper, but where is the action? robert reich is the former u.s. labor secretary to bill clinton and author of "beyond outrage," what's gone wrong with our economy and how to fix it and ari fleischer, former white house press secretary under george w. bush. all right, let's get some action here. robert, the white house responded to john boehner's challenge of saying, where are the cuts, with a blog post from dan pfeiffer who wrote, "the fact is, the president has a detailed balanced plan with spending cuts, he's willing to make tough choices. now it's time for the speaker to do the same." then he had a link to an 80-page proposal from september, including war savings, it includes tax reform, which of course they want. it doesn't fully lay it out by any stretch of the imagination. so jay carney was asked what specifically will the white house cut and here's what jay carney said. >> it's in the proposals he submitted to the speaker of the house that the speaker walked away from -- >> where does the president prevent sequestration from happening? shouldn't the president take the lea

, a hypothetical 2016 matchup between governor christie and hillary clinton, the governor comes up just short. it's clinton over christie 49-45. that would be a rouser. that's enough to keep you excited about politics. christie against clinton. let's have it! we'll be right back. >>> our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. >> welcome back to "hardball." in his inaugural gesture, president obama made it clear that he intends to make marriage equality a priority in his second term. currently there are nine states and the district of columbia, there they are on the map in which same-sex marriage is legal now. and there is legislation percolating in state courts that could add to that number. and is evidence that this fight for gay marriage is moving forward. today the respect for marriage coalition took out a full-page ad. it was so impressive in the big papers of the country, showing bipartisan support for freedom to marry. chad g
. he headlined the event in '95 for bill clinton. according to the reviews at the time, scored hurricanes of laughter. you might need to get in your own way-back machine to recognize the setup material. >> i am honored to be a part of this event though. when i got the invitation, i was thrilled i would be speaking in the same room with the most powerful man in the country, and, well, then i heard judge ito canceled. but you move on. >> judge ito, for those who forgot, was the judge in the o.j. simpson murder case. here is one from the political scene at a time when many democrats were becoming republicans. >> the first announcement is for the democratic congressmen present. please refrain from switching parties during the dinner. it's very confusing to your waiter, all right? i understand nathan deal got the same dessert twice. we got to work that out. >> nathan deal. he was one of the democrats who switched from democrat to republican after the '94 midterm election. a loss for the blue team. by the way, the danger right there is the danger of using topical material. it goes aw
. because remember, in '95 or '96 with -- under the gingrich/dick armey congress bill clinton was able to force them to raise the minimum wage and there were those referenda you talked about. one of the key points that ought to be made and one of the reasons why older studies -- we no longer -- the minimum wage does not apply very much in manufacturing. when you are dealing with manufacturing, which is done across national lines, there could be some negative economic effect in terms of transferring out. we know people are ready to move jobs out. but overwhelmingly today, minimum wage jobs are in the service industries. if the restaurant down the street is charging a little more because of wages, you can't go to malaysia for a sandwich. and so it's food service. the supermarkets and restaurants. if you look at where the minimum wage has an effect, it is in those areas in america that are really not subject to foreign competition. because they're not making things. they are performing a service for which people need to be physically present. this is part of the test of whether or not the
presidential race is easy to predict, if hillary clinton decides to win, she'll clear the field. >>> tea party group has apologized for sending out a e-mail that was photo shopped to make karl rove look like a nazi to help raise funds. >>> choosing candy crowley to moderate the second debate was a mistake, crowley was blasted by conservatives for challenging mitt romney. >>> in facebook town hall meeting tuesday, vice president joe biden talked about white house gun control efforts. following the school shooting in newtown, connects cut. the best thing for protection is a shotgun. >> put that double barrelled shotgun and fired two blast outside the house. you don't need a ar-15, it's harder to aim, it's harder to use and in fact, you don't need 30 rounds to protect yourself. buy a shotgun. >> all right. that's your morning dish of "scrambled politics." >>> turk now to the weather a big snowstorm is headed for the middle of the country and for more on that is bill karins. >> this continues our active february. it looks like this storm is going to hit the midwest wednesday/thursday. all eyes now
clinton mask, the other wore a giant panda suit, which freedomworks had used at protests to denounce progresses as panderers. what they were acting out was not pandering but rather something else. okay. you can now uncover your children's eyes. but this is just the latest detail in the ongoing drama that is the slow unraveling over freedomworks. it is also the detail of how the former chairman of the group, dick armey, stormed into the group's office with a man with a gun when he was reportedly trying to seize control of the group away from the group's president, matt kibbe. there was also dick armey accusing matt kibbe of using freedomworks' staff to write his own book while all the proceeds of the book went to him. there was dick armey's letter resigning of chairman of freedomworks, demanding that the group stop using his name and likeness and his book, and demanding specifically that freedomworks deliver his official dick armey portrait to his goat farm in texas. and after all of that, there was the panda suit thing with the interns. ew. over at the other name brand tea party grou
clinton and a republican leader decided they were going to stomp on 70 of us -- you just get out of the way. and there were usually about 70 conservatives that usually got rolled. but we'll see. i'm sure this is all -- >> still ahead on "morning joe," the moderator of "meet the press" -- i like it when alex gets rough in the control room in my ear. he just yelled at me. i'm going to drive him crazy. all right. moderator of "meet the press" -- >> paul simon. >> that didn't sound like alex, david gregory, secretary of housing and urban development, shaun donovan with the latest on the housing market. that will be good. also historian douglas brinkley. and later, "new york times" film critic tony scott will be here with his oscar picks. that will be cool. and up next, inside this morning's "politico playbook" including how some republican governors are providing a lift for president obama's health care law. >> rick scott out of florida. >> yeah, that's big news. >> who would have ever seen that coming? >> well, makes kind of sense, actually. >> hospitals. >> hospitals, connection wi
clinton. but not politically. let me talk about this, because you're on the front all the time fighting for same-sex rights and gay rights generally. isn't it odd that in a country where we have begun to shift dramatically in that action towards more than acceptance, almost warm acceptance, it's much more positive, okay, we'll go along with that. at the same time we still have a country that still seems to defend gun rights almost to the last man in so many communities. are they different communities? >> i think so. there is a whole range of issues, you know, that we could talk about from reproductive rights to climate change. but i think when it comes to same-sex marriage, we talked earlier about illinois which is poised to be the next state to vote in favor, i think the trajectory both in terms of public sentiment. when i started at hrc, it was 33% of the american people, now it's 43, 53. it will be 60% before long. you have the chairman of the republican party of illinois coming out in favor of this vote, which is significant. >> even ted cruz says leave it up to the states. >> leave
. and what bill clinton and the democratic party discovered when the issue was working in their favor in the 1990s is there is lots of constituents in the country who don't feel that way about guns. certain things on the ground have changed. the democratic party have changed be. in some ways, they're recovering lost knowledge from a previous generation of democrats that actually did know this back in the mid 1990s. >> do you think they're also recognizing that it's not just the median gun owner in oklahoma, doesn't represent the country as a whole, but also the -- the statements of the national rifle association. >> absolutely. >> do not even represent the beliefs of the standard national rifle association member. i mean there is also -- >> yep. >> this dysmorphia between who speaks on the issue and who has strong feelings about the iraq. >> i am now forever going to conjure the image of wayne lapierre when i hear the word dysmorphia. that actually has gotten worse. one of the perverse consequences of republican conservative victory guns is that the nra increasingly has had to justify
house was happy to release photographs of president obama are president clinton. they were very happy to release photographs of president obama palling around with john boehner. >> all on the golf course? >> on the golf course. why not a photograph of president obama with notorious philanderer tiger woods. it's an instant 30-second ad. the president is palling around with tiger woods while the country remains mired in an economic morass. i think the public deserves the right to these photographs. >> ed henry issued this statement. a broad cross section of our members with print, radio, online, and tv have today expressed extreme frustration to having absolutely no access to the president this entire weekend. there's a very simple but important principle we will continue to fight for today and in the days ahead, transparency. does the press deserve more? >> every american has a right to know president obama's golf score. this is worth dying for. i think this is ridiculous. i assume president obama didn't want reporters there because his golf score isn't that great. >> he's probably not

beck. michele bachmann accused hillary clinton's chief of staff of having ties to the muslim brotherhood. her source? an uncorroborated report from a right wing talker frank gaffney. congressman darrell issa got in the act. he orchestrated an entire circus over the fast and furious gun running operation, all based on the rambling of one paranoid blogger. congressman dana rohrabacher alleged the government was able to monitor the benghazi attack in realtime based on a made-up hunch from right-wing blogger jennifer rubin. so time and time again, we are seeing elected officials peddle rumors and hearsay to further their agenda. they're blocking nominations. they're ruining people's reputations, they're holding hearings, and they are smearing people any possible way they can. no $10,000 price can repair the damage the republican party has inflicted upon itself. let's bring in john nichols, washington correspondent of "the nation" magazine. john, good to have you with us tonight. there are no boundaries when it comes to making stuff up with the republicans. where is the republican
, for instance, steve kroft's "60 minutes" interview where he had the president and secretary clinton. it was the biggest softball interview on the planet. they didn't ask any questions about benghazi. it was in the news that week. a whole range of issues. it was all sweetness and light. the president on the one hand when they do get this access, it's like softball city. and when they don't get the access, like on the golf course, it's where we're being shut out. it's the most opaque administration in history. so it's a little bit of much to do about nothing, i think. >> it's harder to be a journalist these days. it really is. in the era of social media with not just the white house and the president but corporations. everyone is going direct to the readership themselves. so i think that's just adding to the frustration here. >> jay carney answered some of these questions yesterday at the podium in the briefing room, too. he laid out all the interviews they've given and the access the white house feels it has given. >> there's no question that if you go back to when mr. barnicle and i
it on the president. >> that's right. and to quote hillary clinton, at a point, even though they all voted for it, and he was part of -- boehner was part of selling it, who cares. the point is at this point, get back to the table and come up with a plan, with a deal. the president has said i'm willing to meet with you. >> steve, if they say no revenue, where do the democrats go from here? >> i think they don't go anywhere. at this point, the process has stalled. there are no talks there are no back channel productions. this are no progress in reaching a resolution and we're really only eight days away. democrats cannot cave and give republicans everything they want, even though i think they're facing some pressure from the political establishment to try and do that in order to work something out. i think at this point all evidence suggests they're going to push into march. that the sequestration cuts are going to happen, and because they really have no choice there is no compromise on the table. there is no opportunity to really work out a deal with republicans who refuse to negotiate or accept a
in the clinton administration, their favored response to a problem was to launch some tomahawk cruise missiles, effective weapons and they don't resolve the problem and our unwillingness to confront the reality that al-qaeda is a threat and it's a threat worldwide and it's a growing threat cripples our ability to deal with it effectively. if we don't acknowledge the reality, it's no surprise that you can't respond to it. >> well, i have no idea where this is going, i just know that it's very different and we need a national dialog on this. >> absolutely right. >> and ambassador, thank you, sir. >> thank you. >> right now, the pakistani doctor who helped the cia track down osama bin laden remains in prison in pakistan and tonight, a call for hollywood to help. >> california activists asking oscar nominees from zero dark thirty and other films to put the spotlight on the doctor's plight. dominic di-natale has more from los angeles. nice to talk to you. >> reporter: great to talk to you, how are you doing. >> greta: very well. dominic, tell the viewers who the doctor is and what he did for the u
clinton was for it. leon panetta was for it. but the white house put the stop on that, because they said we don't want those weapons to fall into the wrong hands. this has been a quagmire for two years now. >> we're talking about 70,000 people dead. it's cost the government $48 billion, billion with a b. the economy that's already crippled, now it's costing them the equivalent of that much money. the u.n. now says war crime charges should be brought on both sides, the government and the rebels. so it's just something -- and we have to watch it from afar. >> we'll be right back after this. ♪ welcome back to that same old place that you laughed about ♪ >> that takes you back, doesn't it? of course, welcome back to robin roberts, taking her "gma" anchor seat. we watched as he turned her private health battle into a campaign for bone marrow transplants. >> four, three -- >> hi, it's robin. i have been waiting 174 days to say this. good morning, america. >> reporter: but no one could see in front of the camera what we saw behind the scenes. of a morning we'd all longed for. >> faith, fami
